and implicit in is what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said on television in that five days later actually about it being a spontaneous demonstration responding to the video, a copycat demonstration of what had happened earlier in cairo was not correct, and then they in turn from the u.n. mission keep saying there was an intelligence memo and everyone is standing in a circle pointing the finger elsewhere. >> it has the same sort of ethos of what happened after 9/11. when you go back and look -- the original 9/11, a lot of data points that might have been able to point to a danger here, point to some issues related to security. we see this now because this was a country that had been involved in historic revolution, had been a hot spot and we're being told that ambassador stevens had wanted greater security. some discussion about when the duty date for some of the members of that security team had expired that he had requested more, that was not done. some of the issues about resources, about judgments made at the time. now that something this awful has occurred, it puts a different light o
contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense
weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we are going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. should we have the marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? we knew there was an al qaeda cell. this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they are blaming the romney-ryan ticket. we had the same position before the withdrawal. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. he failed to get the agreement. that is what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. including your son. we also want to make sure that we do not lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, we agree with a 2014 transition. we want to make sure we are not proje
. welcome, greg. >> indeed. good to see you. two of the top u.n. intelligence directors clamming vice president joe bidenen to try to lay the blame on the intel community rather than the white house. and hillary clinton offers another assessment, saying it's still too early for anyone to know exactly what happened. >> no one wants to find out exactly what happened more than i do. i have appointed an accountability preview board that's already started examining whether our security procedures were appropriate, whether they were properly implemented and what lessons we can and must learn for the future. and we are working as thoroughly and as exspeak dishly as possible knowing we can't afford to have accuracy to speed. our government it sparing no effort in tracking down the terrorists who perpetrated this attack. >> molly is joining us live in washington. molly. >> hi, jamie. a former cia director and a former homeland security director are saying vice president biden said it was erroneously linked by the obama administration to a protest over video is because the intelligence communit

, they have shared the wealth, and it's true that even according to the u.n. there are fewer people today living in poverty in venezuela than there were when chavez took office. you know, randi, there is a sense here that, look, his time is over, and that's not just because he fought cancer. he claims he's cancer-free but on the campaign trail he isn't looking very healthy, and there is this sense that chavez revolution, the very left wing socialist revolution that he started, could be waning and the problem is taking from government coffers they haven't really invested as much. if you start from that oil infrastructure moving right down to the roads, in caracas, in the capital or out to the regions where there's lots of power, this is a country hanging on by a fiscal threat and they say next year default is perhaps possible and for sure financial restructuring will have to happen, and that could mean a devaluation of the currency here. randi? >> paula, what is at stake really for the u.s. in this election. >> reporter: you know, it might surprise many people in the united states that alm

not be deployed without u.n. approval. then in the mid 1980's, he ran on the basis of cutting most of our major defense programs. in 1991, he voted against desert storm. it's a consistent pattern over time of always being on the wrong side of defense issues. a little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues. and they give absolute no ibbed case based on that record of being willing to go forward and aggressively pursue the war on terror with the kind of strategy that will defeat our enemies and will guarantee the united states doesn't get attacked by the likes of al qaeda. >> we'll get back to that topic. tonight we mentioned afghanistan. we believe that osama bin laden is hiding perhaps in a cave somewhere along the afghan-pakistan border. if you get a second term, what is your plan to capture him? and then to neutralize those who have sprong up to replace him? >> when we have -- we've never let up on osama bin laden from day one. we've actual live pursued him. we've captured thous
of what everyone has talked about, what president obama talked-about at the u.n., the cascade of proliferation, the unraveling of the regime. that is what would follow from the saudi opposition of nuclear weapons, because it does not probably stop saudi arabia. there are other countries in the area that will want them as well. preventing that will become a very high priority for united states foreign policy. and by preventing that, i mean preventing the saudis from responding. we do not want to end up there, but think that is where we are the moment it becomes clear that they have nuclear weapons. what we do? one thing we will do, and quite confident is to apply the cold war deterrence model can and try to persuade the saudis that they do not need nuclear weapons if they are the victim of a nuclear attack. i think there's a lot of reason to think that we might not be as persuasive and making that case to the saudi government as we work to the germans and other allies during the cold war. another thing, we will go to the saudis and say, we will keep in place in sanctions regime

take a look at what has happened in the last few weeks. they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and a youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and he said six times the youtube video. if we are hit by terrorists, we are going to call it. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment guarding him. should we have the marine detachment guarding our ambassador in benghazi? we knew there was an al qaeda cell. this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they are blaming the romney- ryan ticket. we had the same position before the withdrawal. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice-president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. he failed to get the agreement. that is what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude. including your son. we also want to make sure that we do not lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan, we agree with
support to the whole country, u.s. employees and the whole country, and eric n nordstrom asking for more security and his responses were unanswered and they said they wanted to keep the security presence to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other atta
, the ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, you have this state department comments coming out. now we come out to find that those were absolutely not true. they are somewhere between totally false and absolutely not true. it's certainly -- >> i think that that's an exaggeration, congressman. >> no. >> let's play them then. >> what is true about what she said? >> let's first play the -- what ambassador rice had to say. i think she's the one who went on september 16th on "meet the press" went further than everybody. bedon't have that clip. she said she believed it looked like it was connected to protests. she went the furthest. but jay carney, i think that was on september 18th, actually said something not going quite as far. i think we have her sound bite. let's play the ambassador first. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in chiropractor r cairo. almost a copycat demonstrations against our facility in cairo pr
of state hillary clinton and the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. so what are they going to say? there is a separation between those two and the rest of the state department and the white house? what side will they be on? >> steve: because to many, it looks like there has been some sort of cover-up going on and hillary clinton at the ends of her tenure as secretary of state, the last thing she wants, 'cause she wants to run for president, is a full blown scandal. but that's what -- >> gretchen: the last thing president obama wants as well is a full blown scandal 27 days from the election. >> steve: sure. but the thing is if her state department is out there, you know, pushing through susan rice, it was spontaneous, it was about the movie when it wasn't, the one thing that hillary is on the griddle for responsibility wise is the security. would they all be dead today if they had the proper security? a lot of people are asking themselves that. >> brian: right. by the way, i am looking for a scandal. so if you're interested. by the way, mitt romney was getting -- he's getting more
including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., did interview after interview connecting the attack to anger over a movie. bill: want to start with peter doocy live in washington. the why is the state department now saying the attack not spontaneous? >> reporter: because lethality and number of armed attackers is unprecedented in recent diplomatic history. plus there was no protest in front of consulate on the night of the attack. the people inside the compound heard explosions before 9:00 p.m. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a plea planned attack. -- preplanned attack. it is not reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> reporter: we know the administration did internally classify as a terrorist attack within 24 hours. we expect to hear a lot more three hours from now in a house oversight committee hearing just across the street that is being billed simply as the security failures of benghazi. bill. bill: i'm looking at four witnesses. any heads up what they will say, peter? >> we heard a little bit from two of
them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known at that particular moment. you are already setting up, you know, some would say that the administration lied. in fact, chairman isa said that the administration misled people. now, patrick kennedy from the stat department, he is the under secretary for management, and he is saying no, that is what we knew at that particular point. there are some other interesting moments, fred, as we go through this. we can discuss it if you want, but i think that's one of the key things. >> it is, indeed. so we also just learned information that the white house has sent john brennan to libya. he has been meeting with senior libyan officia
few weeks, and they sent the u.n. ambassador got to say that this is because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this is a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech, he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we are hit by terrorists, will call up what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. should we have it very detachment regarding our benghazi, please renew there was an al qaeda with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. >> all right. rachel, who won that exchange quick >> one thing who won the debate and i think that was martha raddatz. a very aggressive moderator. didn't interrupt, but kept them on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that ex

month's attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice is firing back over criticism that she mislead congress. >> peter doocy is live in washington following this story for us, peter. she is walking it back this morning, it seems. clayton and mike. even though they knew the raid was premeditated act of terror and not angry mob within one day of the attack, five days later they dispatched the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice to five sunday shows, there she is. to say there wasn't enough information to characterize the attack one way or the other. but, ambassador rice is now defending herself against some of her critics in congress who have gone after her initial explanation. she said in a letter, quote: i relied solely and squarely on the information the intelligence community provided to me, information represented the intelligence community's best current assessment of the -- as of the date of my television appearances. that is not good enough for republic senators mccain and johnson they have now written a letter of their own that says the
